DART FISH

Toyota Sports Center is proud to announce the acquisition of Dartfish! Dartfish is a state-of-the-art video analysis software analysis tool is widely used at figure skating training centers by coaches. Ice hockey and speed skaters can benefit from their coaching using this tool. Competitive single free skaters. pair skaters, ice dancers, synchronized skating teams, Theater on Ice teams, and Showcase skaters and groups - everyone can benefit from this equipment being available.

Dartfish allows coaches to capture video with unparalleled ease using a remote control, DV camera, and a laptop computer. The computer allows coaches to store and analyze vast amounts of video material quickly and give appropriate feedback almost instantly. This speeds the learning process and creates a safer learning environment as multiple measurements can be accurately tracked. 

The video can then be transferred to CDROM, or DVDROM. This makes consulting and distance learning a snap. Just imagine being able to send your individual or synchro program to a world level coach, technical specialist and/or judge who could view it using the detailed video analysis tool to provide feedback on skills, technical elements, comment on the levels of ISJ elements performed, etc. USFS is looking at this tool to provide coaches, technicians and judges visual training on new standards and/or rule changes. The opportunities are vast!
